Curtis Jones was noticeably absent from Liverpool’s weekend match, and manager Jurgen Klopp admitted that he did so on the recommendation of the team’s medical staff.

He stated that a second evaluation of his condition would take place on Monday:

“Curtis felt a little bit and we couldn’t take any risks. [There] was no impact or whatever, so that always makes it a bit, ‘My god, what could it be?’

“We had no time; he felt it today and he wanted to play desperately, but then the medical department said no and that we needed to make further tests. We will do that tomorrow and then we will know more.”
